There’s a war going on no one is safe from: The social media-driven nostalgia of Throwback Thursdays and Flashback Fridays. If you want to take things way back in the day and reign supreme in your social circles, you’d be smart to get dapper and catch the Arizona Lindy Hop Society’s Swing Night.
Steve Conrad has been leading the local swing scene for years. If you’re a total newbie at getting your Lindy Hop on, the night begins with an hour of lessons in East Coast Swing, Charleston, and other vintage dances from Conrad and his cohorts. Later in the evening, the Fatcat Ballroom kicks into high gear with DJs spinning jazzy jams and the occasional live band making an appearance.
Swing Night takes place Tuesdays at Fatcat Ballroom, 3131 East Thunderbird Road, Suite #33. The shindig starts with lessons at 7:30 p.m. and a full frenzy of swing kids at 8:30. Admission for this all-ages event is $7. Visit www.fatcatballroomdance.com or call 602-324-7119 for more information.
